Smooth Moves by Beginner's Luck

  • Fantasy Football is a game where the high score wins. So keep doing what you have to do, the Toyota Hall of Fame will turn a blind eye.
  • We won't judge you if you want to bow to Drew Brees. He ranked ninth in the league in scoring with 24.72 points.
  • Antonio Gates, who was picked up by Beginner's Luck, scored 13.50 points against a projected 8.41, topping his projection by 60.5%.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Odell Beckham Jr. have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked third in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 16.60 points.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Allen Robinson posterizing opponents. He had the seventh-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 13.60 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Funny, the Hall provides articles you could have studied. But instead you watched The Yacht Rockers cry trying.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Christine Michael during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 6.10 points against a projected 12.27 this week.
  • Roberto Aguayo was last on the team in scoring with 2.00 points against a projected 6.27 and underachieved for the second time this season.
  • The Yacht Rockers had only 4 of their 9 starters underperform versus their projections, but they still lost.
  • With 2.70 points, Terrance West scored only 24.4% of his 11.05 projected point total.

What If

  • Beginner's Luck would be 5-4 if they played The Yacht Rockers every week.
  • Beginner's Luck would have beaten only two other teams besides The Yacht Rockers this week.

  • Beginner's Luck would be 28-35 if they played every team every week.
